Traditional Dovetail Joinery
Date: Sunday, Sep 18 - Saturday, Sep 24, 2022
Subject: Woodworking
Instructor: John Combs
Share:

The dovetail joint has been known for centuries as a symbol of quality woodworking. It not only adds creative detail but is also a very strong interlocking joint for case construction from drawers and boxes to blanket chests. In this class, we will cover layout and cutting of through and half-blind dovetails in the making of a box with dovetailed corners. Using handsaws and chisels, students will learn the skills needed to create this hand-cut joint the traditional way. All levels welcome.

Tuition: $693.00
